When Joker returned to Gotham after a year hiatus now wearing his disembodied face skin as a mask, he attempted to get Harley to conform to his new brand of craziness with him by cutting off her face as well. In order to drive her to that point of madness, Joker infected her former hyenas with rabies and commanded them to attack her. Unable to fend them off, Harley was forced to break their necks, apparently killing her beloved pets. 
However, it was revealed that they were somehow still alive and were rehabilitated.
